or battle till the bloody end here? >> what seems to be happening for president obama is that he has a firewall in the midwest or at least his campaign hopes that. actually, the election results come on tuesday might very well hinge on whether that firewall truly exists or not. according to our polls that you just showed in iowa, president obama has a lead. in wisconsin, it's a smaller lead. some other public polls suggest that as well. however, the romney campaign has made it adamantly clear that according to their polls in iowa, the race is dead even. so it really kind of matters where you actually see the race right now. but it's largely going to come down, as chuck pointed out, to the midwest and that's why you'll see president obama campaigning in ohio, wisconsin, iowa a lot these last five days. >> amy, let me bring you in. i know to mark's point, i believe it was one of the romney advisers or a supporter who said i think the word was "crap" when it comes to polls, at least the ones they didn't like to see. nevertheless, you can disagree with the percentage point here or there,

"pr
clear politics" average of the most recent polling in the state of ohio shows president obama ahead in ohio by 2.3 points. these "real clear politics" averages are an imperfect measure. i want to give you a very rough idea of how basically how close it is right now. that's what it is in ohio. in virginia, that same polling average has mitt romney ahead by 0.5 points, and in north carolina, the polling average has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of

morning. or good afternoon. it is quiet here but a big crowd for president obama just an hour ago. and there was a key message from the president and that vote. this is a state that, of course, is all about turn out, one of the key battleground state. in 2008, 76% of residents of this county voted and listen to the final numbers. barack obama 49.58%. john mccain 48.74%. and the focus was on white working class voters. the president doing much better here in ohio than in any other battleground state and he talked a lot about the auto industry and the largely discredited ad by the romney campaign that the obama campaign thinks has backfired on them. but he also brought up hurricane sandy which he sees as an example of everyone working together. here's what the president had to say just a short time ago. ♪ >> neighbors helping neighbors cope with tragedy. leaders of different political parties working together to fix what's broken.

their books. and demagoguery from -- "mugged: racial demagoguery from the seventies to obama" is in sight land timely. i have to say after reading that i felt so unburdened and liberated, i will go ahead and get rid of all of the secret racial words i have been bottling up and here it goes. chicago, constitution, experience, closing the fort, privilege, kitchen cabinets, peanut butter, community organizer, black hole, apartment, share. all racially coded words and now that i am on a roll and this is a friendly crowd of go-ahead and make the most recent statement deemed by the current view out there. here it goes. the most racist comment is i am not voting for president obama. got to get that off my chest. i feel a lot better. don't say that to the person next to you if you feel that way. all joking aside we live in an upside-down world where saying harmless words like that can bear huge tax on the other side and yet the other side can say very toxic comments without repercussions or being held to the same standard. one example is mark lamont hill. you may have seen a recent article, the most o
